BlackBerry 'Argon' passes through the FCC and WiFi certification as DTEK60

Following up on the earlier leak of the DTEK60, the device has now landed at the FCC and WiFi Alliance sites. At the FCC, the device has been registered under the model number BBA100­1 but at the WiFi Alliance site, the device shows as both BBA100­1 and the DTEK60 confirming the naming convention across the board. As expected, there's not a lot of further info to be gleaned from the filings as they're not all public, but it does add further confirmation the DTEK60 will be released.

The timing of the appearance was rather interesting. John Chen just completed his discussions with Amber Kanwar at the Empire Club as these documents were unveiled. Also, I'll be the bearer of what some may consider bad news. The WiFi Alliance still shows the devices running Android 6.0.1, so in other words, no Android 7.0 Nougat as of yet.
